"I was so excited to be selected for the Showcase. The only recording experience I had was on my old laptop's webcam, which was horrible, so being able to sing in a professional studio was a very special moment in my life, and I am very thankful! The thing that stood out to me the most during this process was hearing my progression with 'The Adventure' over the weeks leading up to my recording. When I first started practicing the song, the music would drown out my voice, so I am very happy with how much I have improved in that regard. Overall, it was just an amazing experience, and I feel very privileged!"

Christian came to us with a great, unique sound but no 'oomph' and no high range. He also struggled with running out of air, so the first thing we did was establish his chest voice properly and then connected it into his new-found head voice. His progress was so quick that we decided to include him in the Showcase. We picked a song that would challenge his ability to sing long lines without running out of air as well as high notes that until then were out of his range. In addition we decided to create a slightly different arrangement for the middle section of the song to make it 'his own'. Just two months later, he nailed it!
